Ocular Plastic Surgery
Ocular plastic surgery, or oculoplastic surgery, is a field of ophthalmology focused on the health of the structures around your eyes. This includes your eyelids, tear ducts, eyebrows, orbit (your eye socket), and face.
If you require surgery involving the delicate area around your eyes or face, turn to the ophthalmologists at South Florida Vision Associates who have additional training and experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the eyes and face. Our specialists are experts in ophthalmologic microsurgery as well as the principles of cosmetic surgery.
Oculoplastic surgery is sometimes also called oculofacial or ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery.

There are a wide variety of medical conditions that can affect the structures around your eyes. The conditions we can treat with oculoplastic surgery include:
- Bell’s palsy
- Drooping eyelid (ptosis)
- Eye issues as a result of Graves’ disease (which causes hyperthyroidism), including eyelid malposition/retraction, double vision, and ocular proptosis (bulging eyes)
- Injuries to the eye, eyelid, or orbit
- Tear duct obstructions
- Tumors on the eyelids or face
